(Athlon 64 3500+) PF Usage still 225MB running just IE, Google video player, and Yahoo messenger. Feels pretty damn smooth, Windows XP that is. But damn, I can remember running Win98 with,hell, maybe 256MB and having the same "feel". WTF!? Fucking software has just exploded. And not just Windows. Tried running Suse 10 on my P2 333 w/256MB. Fucking sucked, slow-ass POS. Felt like I did when I was playing with an old Redhat distro on my 486, about 6 years ago, or like at the local community college where they tried Win95 on 486s with 8MB ram-which depending on what software you had wouldn't necessary be a bad experience-but in their case-it sucked.
